Brief Description 

    

Llamadas Perdidas is not a virus; it is a hoax or an e-mail message, whose content warns that several telecommunications companies are about to charge lost calls made to cellphones.

In order to gain the user confidence, this hoax tricks users into thinking that the original information source are telecommunication companies.

Its aim is to cause alarm and get users to forward the message to all the contacts in the Address Book.

However, in order to avoid problems, users should do the opposite of what the message proposes. Do not forward the message and delete it immediately.
